p.2 Port Hope Harbor - It is absurd to our friends in Port Hope to expect any assistance from the Government toward the completion of their harbor. They are already Five Millions of Pounds in debt, and even if they disposed to increase the amount they could not do it, for our credit in England is almost ruined. The plan which will be adopted to complete the Cobourg Harbor would be a very good one to apply to Port Hope. It is intended to solicit every man, woman and child in this town, to take stock till the amount required be raised. 5000 Pounds is all we want, and we are sure it can be raised in this way. If Port Hope be as spirited and enterprising, she will find no difficulty in raising funds by the same means. We again tell our neighbors it is time thrown away to appeal to the Government. Cobourg has tried that game for a long time and derived no benefit from it whatever. [Star]
